Subject: First of two nights, Chi fa71
Much similarity between 10/21 and 10/22. Consensus seems to be that 10/21 is the better show; 10/22 getting the Dave's Picks' treatment due to its not being as widely circulated. 10/21, as Mind Wondrin notes in a review for the following show, "circulated to some extent as an FM simulcast." Not so with 10/22, which remained a "mystery" for a very long time. To be sure, it also boasts a twenty-nine minute bombshell Other One/Cryptical Suite. Must-listen: Phil is a terror and the whole band sounds better than ever.
Back to 10/21. Solid, high-energy Truckin' show opener. Six song debuts played a couple nights prior (Tenn Jed, Jack Straw, Mexicali, Comes A Time, Sat Night, Ramble On Rose) are all played again. Must have been a treat to hear all this new material. PITB is a tight 6 minutes, but from roughly 3:00-4:20 they give us a sense of where they'd take it in the years to come. Love this Dark Star medley. Listen especially around 11 minutes as the jam shifts gears and segues into a surprise SOTOTW and then back into Dark Star. 16 beats on BIODTL; 17 on 10/22. Everything that wasn't played on 10/22 (Truckin', Big Railroad Blues, DS->SOTOTW->DS, BEW, and St. Stephen) made the cut -- and some -- as bonus tracks on Dave's Picks 3 (mentioned above).
No question, this is five-star, cowboy-psychedelic dead.
Subject: Very good show
Subject: good show
Excellent second set includes one of the better Dark Star's of the year. SOTOTW and Brown Eyed are very good.
The Auditorium Theater shows were high energy throughout the 70's.
Subject: Finally can hear the keys!
Subject: Best Me and My Uncle ever.
Subject: Dave picked the wrong night!

"I appreciate your review but get your facts right about my comments re: the track names being screwed-up on the player (fact). Lazy? ("Took you less than 15 minutes to relabel them on I Tunes"). If you read what I said it mentions that I had already downloaded this upgrade from Lossless Legs so I don't have to use the player - what I said was for the benefit of others, and I don't have to mess around with I Tunes either. Laziness ??????
Yes, I do understand that this privilege is not a given and I am very 'grateful' for all the effort given by all to make this wonderful music (the music that both you and I crave) available to us. That said, when I cock-up, I don't object when people bring it to my attention (provided it is done without malice), I like to get things right and I am sure that they do too. By bringing the mess with the track names on the player to the attention of those concerned, I am giving them the opportunity to put things right, not leave them as they are ,,,,, ssshhh don't mention it.
Go crawl back under your I Tunes rock".
Sounds like somebody expects something thats certainly not inherently a given.
This is a show quality review blog, we don't want to hear about you laziness in not wanting to rename the tracks. It took me less than fifteen minutes on I Tunes.
Typical sounding show for this period, but typical for fall 71' is great. Keith's second show and he is PLAYING TO IMPRESS. Every fill sounds like he is flush in with Billy, Phil, and Jerr. It's such a shame how downhill he went in the later days, especially listening to the quality of shows like these.
A spacey Dark Star melts into a Sittin On Top Of The World back into Dark Star then out of nowhere, Bobby McGee. I would say along with Halloween this is the best October 71' Keith show.
El Paso and NFA>GDTRFB>NFA missing, like in all the other sources.
BEST SOURCE (i'm sure) since its a Charlie Miller upgrade.
Thanks again pal!
